Caregiver Fraud

Caregiver Fraud with Allison Hubley

According to journalist Susan Kostal, “Today, people over age 50fraud2
control 70 percent of our nation’s wealth. This sets older adults up for a variety of theft schemes and scams, not because they’re older and
weaker, but simply because they have the money, and thieves know it”.
This session will examine frauds perpetrated by individuals who serve as personal caregivers or by the agencies where they are employed. Russ Knopp, the owner of Northern Michigan Comfort Keepers,
Kristin Harrison of Munson Home Health, and Paula Gibeson RN-BC, Certified Gerontological Nurse will participate in a panel discussion and also discuss how potential caregivers are vetted by their
companies.
* Allison serves as a Basic Member of the Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff’s Office Posse Reserve in a volunteer capacity.

In September of 2014, a very successful session on “How to Protect Yourself Against Fraud” was held at the Empire Township Hall. This session is being repeated but with a specific focus on scams that affect individuals financially, as well as an in-depth look at some of the scams
that were discussed in the Scam Alert column this past year. At this year’s Financial Fraud seminar, we may be joined by some very special guests, if scheduling permits—stay tuned!
